Scope of AV project

  • Who is the client?

    Skew Restaurant, located in the heart of Bishop’s Stortford and situated on the beautiful river Stort. Bringing you fine food, live entertainment, Al Fresco dining, a stunning Champagne & Oyster bar, with cocktails & more.

    Food cooked with passion & pride, derived from a Mediterranean heritage. Skew aim to bring you the exciting and authentic taste of the Mediterranean Coast – traditional dishes with a unique and exciting regional twist.

    How did the work come about?

    When the restaurant originally opened in 2016, we installed a professional BOSE audio system. This was background music for the bar, private dining and downstairs dining area.

    This BOSE bar av install consisted of:

    – Cloud electronics 4 channel amplifier

    – Bose DS100 surface and ceiling mounted speakers

    – Cloud RL1 Volume controls for 4 zones

    During the lockdown of 2020, Ali renovated the upstairs of the restaurant. A complete refurb and requested us to install a DJ system for the weekend evening entertainment.

    A background music system was also required outside, ideal for the beautiful summer evenings by the river.

What bar av was installed?

We used 4 x Martin Audio cabinet speakers and 2 x 10” subwoofers in the upstairs bar area for the DJ system. These were powered from the rack using 2 x QSC GX5 2 channel amplifiers offering 500W per channel. We used the DBX 215S Dual 15-Band Equaliser to alter the sound to the preference of Skew’s resident DJ Conrad. The speakers sounded great and Ali was very impressed with the performance.

Outside we installed 4 x AMC outdoor speakers and used a Sonos Amp. Ali was pleased again with the level of quality background music for the al fresco diners.
